Possibly the most enthusiastic brigade of the Landcare army is Junior Landcare.
Launched in May 1998, Junior Landcare recognises that the contribution of young people is vital if the land they are to inherit is to be in the best possible condition. Junior Landcare also encourages young people to develop a sense of responsibility to the land and other natural resources and understand where our food comes from.
Landcare activities can be successfully integrated into a range of topics within the school curriculum or be part of Scouts or similar youth group activities.
Landcare programs organised by schools and youth groups provide a great framework for learning in outdoor ‘living classrooms. Junior Landcare enables kids of all ages to become involved with their local landcare group and work on a range of environmental projects.
